10:06 pm
>> reporter: right now, we are along morgan valley road, this is an area where the fire ran through. yesterday overnight, or sometime this morning, you can see there's virtually no vegetation left here that was not burned. if you look up in this light, you can see how thick the smoke is in the ashes. and this blanket of smoke layed down when the sun came through tonight. the same thing is expected to happen with the fire. it is expected to lay down overnight. >> reporter: this evening in view, both north and south of morgan valley road, you can see burning brush and heavy smoke. this vegetation is surrounded by scorched earth, and of little consequence to firefighters. >> a very large tanker. making a big drop. >> reporter: but earlier today, the jerusalem fire raged, and the fire fight was intense, as thousands of acres were added to the burned total. >> we have fire to our east, on the eastern side here. and also on the western side, there's a lot of unburned fuel in here, and up in here by
10:07 pm
these dozer lines. >> reporter: firefighter tony mchale says the conditions this afternoon were particularly dangerous. gusty winds, and dry grasses, or flash fuels. by the hour, the fire lines moved away from morgan valley road and deeper into the back country. only making containment more difficult. >> we're faced with the same challenges we had before with access. very difficult to get crews, very limited roads, improved roads, so people have to hike in. we have to use a lot of aircraft. >> reporter: a dc10 tanker dropped long lines of fire retardant, one of several aircraft working to protect homes before the typical burst of fire activity in the afternoon. >> then when things start to settle down at night, and the humidity goes up, they start pounding in the containment line. >> reporter: that's what should be taking place right about now. this is just one of 16 fires burning in california. most of them in northern california. cal fire says it has about 500 engines deployed on those

10:11 pm
orbit. as we are orbiting around the sun, we pass through the stream of particles left behind by the comet, so we see it as kind of, if you imagine driving through a snowstorm, the snow is coming straight down, but because you're driving it looks like it's coming at you. and we get the same effect, so we have a point in space where we call the radiant, which is where the meteors appear to come from. if you look up here, you can see the radiant, it's near the constellation persius, so that's where the perseid name comes from. >> reporter: you can expect to see 50 to 60 meters every hour. that's one every minute. as i mentioned, location is key. here we've got city lights and the fog, but if you look to the eastern sky, we should be good to go. it's not expected to happen until around midnight.
10:12 pm
as you can see, there were a lot of kids here. hoping to stay up past their bed time tonight to take in tonight's shower. i spoke with a little girl named anna, this will be her first time to see a meteor shower. she is beyond excited. she told me if she's able to see it, it will be the first thing that she tells her classmates when she attends the first day of school on monday. >> usual, we talk about our summer. usually, two minutes for the weekend, three minutes for summer vacation. and probably, my question would be did you guys see the meteor shower. >> reporter: to that, anna is hoping to be able to say i saw it, and it was awesome. that's what a lot of people here are also hoping to be able to say tonight. this is not expected to peak until midnight. astronomers say between midnight and 3:00 a.m., you'll probably be able to see all of those showers. they say this year, the sky's conditions are especially good, because the moon is relatively new and won't interfere with
10:13 pm
the showers of view. so take it in. starting at midnight tonight. go ahead and drink your coffee now. >> sounds like anna is a junior nasa scientist right now. >> got to see a few of those streets, and it's really neat to see. the team rescued hundreds of people during hurricane katrina. at 10:30, how a bay area fire chief is tackling a new personal challenge. >> it's a very humbling injury. >> checking on your bay area temperatures for our thursday. it's going to be slightly warmer in some places. i'll let you know the spots that will be the warmest, and where the fog will be tomorrow morning when you get going. >> police are calling it an unusual case of shoplifting at this iconic apple store. how quickly it took a crew of criminals to steal thousands of dollars wort of iphones, and why the case is a challenge for police.

front of us. open up their bag and walk out within a minute. >> reporter: police say don't have a lot of leads, only generic descriptions. they're opening for a break in the case. >> it's pretty widely known that the phones are pretty secure. you would think you would have to have some kind of a plan to remarket these phones somehow, or ship them overseas somehow. >> reporter: police say what made this case unusual is the sheer number of suspects and the amount of phones they were able to get away with. now they do have surveillance video. they're not releasing it, saying at this point, it's not much of a help to them, because the criminals aren't really recognizable. >> that was going to be my question. so there is videotape, but not doing much good. all right, maureen in palo alto. new developments tonight in alameda where police say they've arrested a teenager for allegedly breaking into an apartment, and sexually assaulting a girl in her bedroom. investigators say the assault happened over the weekend, while the girl's mother slept in the same apartment. police say the 17-year-old boy

10:20 pm
